94 Mazda B4000, power windows, locks, mirrors.

I took the door panels of to upgrade to 6x9 speakers and 04 Ranger mirrors. In the process, I noticed that three of the door retaining tabs were broken (which explains the rattle), the lower screw hole had broken out of the plastic, and the black switch section ahead of the armrest has a broken clip. They are 26 years old, after all.

I think its time for new/used door panels.

I read in the tech section that only 93-97? panels interchange? Is that correct? Is it all 93-97? Explorer, Ranger, B-series, etc?

All I'm sure of is the Mazda B4000 is almost identical to the 93 Ranger 4.0. I recently went to a wrecking yard and got a mazda transmission from one for my Ranger. The door panels were identical to mine except his had electric windows and mine were roll up, otherwise I might grabbed some things off of it too.
As it was I got the instrument panel, the radio(identical except on front mine says Ford, his said Mazda :) ) the third brake/dome light top rear of the cab. I also got 2 identical ones of those from 99 rangers, one of which is on my truck today.
That was my introduction to the Mazda B-series, almost no differences at all, excepting one main difference, the Mazdas were assembled in Japan I suppose, using metric bolts and screws, and the Rangers assembled in USA using standard sizes
